Grade 4 - May 25 / 2018

Camp George
Please review the packing list with your child. We also encourage students to practice rolling up their own sleeping bag ahead of the trip. This is very helpful when we’re packing up. Just a reminder that students are NOT to bring any sweets. They can however, bring a small snack for the bus on the way to camp.

We are in the thick of our exploration of rocks, minerals, and mining. Students had an opportunity to explore the rock cycle and learn about the genesis of sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks. We wrapped up money and decimals and are moving onto probability. We also finished with persuasive writing and are nearing the middle point of our third novel study. They are enjoying the books!

The week of May 28th, all York Shop Lands End black long sleeve t-shirts will be $10.00. We have inventory of some “Take on the World”  slogan and some celebration our 50th Anniversary. Some youth medium to x-large and adult medium to xxl sizes are available. Please let me know if you are interested by email with your students name for charging, the size of interest and the reception you wish it left at. I will respond regarding inventory for your request by email early next week.

Looking Ahead
In French, students will begin filming their final play, Chat Angora, the week of June 4th.

Students will be bringing their house coloured tie-dyed t-shirt home on Friday afternoon in a plastic bag. Please remind your child to take the bag out of their backpack when they get home as the the elastic bands will need to be removed and the t-shirt will need to be washed and dried. The t-shirts are for the students to wear for our Track & Field Day on Friday, June 8th to show house spirit.
